  • Villari's Martial Arts
    With over 15 million students trained since their founding in 1968, Villari's Martial Arts Centers continue to train pugnacious pugilists young and old using techniques crafted by Grandmaster Fred Villari. Developed as a fusion of classic Eastern fighting styles, Villari's exclusive Shaolin Kempo Karate combines the graceful energy of Shaolin, the quick, explosive blows of kempo and karate, and the grappling of Chin Na to provide combatants with a varied, effective self-defense system. Children gain strength and discipline in youth classes, while adult classes leave grown-ups ready to handle anything from dojo defense to tense lunchroom stand-offs over the day's last apple bran muffin.

  • Backbar
    As the sister venture of the restaurant known as Journeyman, Backbar sits directly behind its precursor in an unfussy, industrial-style space. But don’t let its afterthought origins fool you. Backbar has emerged from the shadows of Journeyman and built a following of its own, thanks to award-winning bar manager Sam Treadway and his merry band of mixologists. “The bar staffers are eager to please,” remarked Boston Magazine, “and they do.” A reverence for cocktails of days past mixed with an uncontainable thirst for innovation has yielded modern takes on classics such as the fall back, a revisited old-fashioned that blends bourbon with maple, walnut, and bitters. And the innovation doesn’t stop there—ever-changing selections include the drink of the day, drink of the week, and the seasonal milk punch, a traditional eggnog-esque concoction treasured by early American colonists and the cows that loved them. The inspired cocktails find accompaniment in an equally inspired menu of small plates that includes spicy caramel-bacon popcorn, charcuterie platters, and gourmet ice cream sandwiches.

  • Conrad Gallagher Foods- Boston
    Conrad Gallagher has many roles?television personality, restaurateur, and cookbook author, to name a few?but the same passion for cooking that he puts into each of these tasks garnered his restaurant a Michelin star when he was 24, making him the youngest starred chef at the time. He began his training in Ireland at the age of 12, when most other kids are too busy playing games or collecting seagull feathers. Conrad's persistent dedication paid off in the form of numerous awards and accomplishments, including preparing a St. Patrick's Day dinner for President Bill Clinton at the White House. These days, Conrad stretches his talents to other fields, such as menu planning and restaurant development. He also schools laymen in the kitchen with cooking lessons that focus on specific genres, including Italian, French, and seafood. Gift certificates are available for purchase.

  • Brooklyn Boulders Somerville
    Climbers of all ages and skill levels scamper across roughly 22,000 square feet of climbable space inside Brooklyn Boulders's rock-climbing gym. A dedicated route-setting staff organizes color-coded problems on craggy, angled top-rope walls as well as bouldering walls that reach up to 15 feet. To help visitors master these walls, seasoned instructors train them in three basic types of climbing: bouldering, top-rope climbing, or lead climbing. They teach these skills through classes such as the peak-performance program, which combines seven classes in lead climbing, bouldering, and cross-training to accelerate students' learning. To ease stressed muscles and promote calm reflection, staffers also lead all-ages yoga lessons and monthly yoga workshops. Brooklyn Boulders also injects creativity into its special events, which encourage visitors to climb in costume around Halloween and take part in competitions during which they pretend the floor has turned to lava. Staffers also invite local graffiti artists to display their murals inside, work to preserve regional climbing areas by partnering with Access Fund, and coordinate programs through its BKB Foundation?a nonprofit that provides greater access to rock climbing for kids and adults.
